If you have some ActionScript experience, this should be enough to get you started using 3D interactively in Flash. If you are new to ActionScript 3.0, hopefully this example will interest you enough to further explore the 3D possibilities of Flash and ActionScript.
In addition to the ActionScript 3.0 Classroom in a Book, another book that goes into more detail about many of the techniques used here is Keith Peter’s excellent Making Things MoveFoundation ActionScript 3.0 Animation (Friends of Ed).
Next month, we will look at more 3D possibilities in Flash using a third-party 3D engine. This will lay a foundation for working with the new MoleHill features when they are released so that you can be part of the Flash 3D revolution.
